It’s a time of year when ants seem to be everywhere. I’ve gotten quite a few messages about how to keeps ants away from my Hummer feeders, so I thought I would share some ideas on Backyard Feeding. EnviroMinute this week has a step by step guide on how to make incredible, long lasting sustainable bird baths instead of spending money on disposable plastic ones. Dr. Bird answers a question about Common and Red-Breasted Mergansers occupying the same nest boxes, and finally I have some great stories to share this week. Baby Puffins are being rescued as part of an annual event in Newfoundland, the Swiss are being encouraged to let their open spaces get a bit messier and the Acadia Birding Festival is something you should put on your bucket list.

I’m off to Gaspésie this week for some seaside bird watching.

Have a great time everyone!
